Cowen Lee Hamblin

November 3, 1955 — January 30, 2021

Cowen Lee Hamblin, 65, passed away Saturday, January 30, 2021 in Phoenix. He was born November 3, 1955 in Springerville, the son of Douglas Dale Hamblin and Colleen Gibbons.

Cowen was born in the White Mountains where he discovered his love for hunting, camping and fishing. He loved spending time with friends and family teaching them exactly how to do the things he loved, but above all he loved serving others. He loved his time coaching youth sports, especially basketball. Every player he coached was better for the influence he had on their lives. His love for his players was always felt even through his teasing ways.

He spent countless hours organizing and putting on benefits to help those in need and enjoyed this so much! His greatest joy came later in life with his grandkids. He loved teaching them all of the things he loved and sharing those experiences with them.

Cowen is survived by his wife, Wendy Hamblin, Eagar; sons, Lee (Shana) Hamblin, Eagar; Shane (Jessica) Hamblin, Eagar; daughters, Amber (Brad) Baca, Eagar; Megan (Kellin) Walker, Rexburg, Idaho; step-children, Rock Crowther, Eagar; Danika Crowther, Eagar; brothers, Eddie Hamblin, Steven Hamblin, Brock Hamblin, sisters, Shanna Denault, Dawn Hamblin, Robin Coleman and 24 grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents, father-in-law, George Pena, step-son, Rory Finch and best friend, Kelvin Walker.

Funeral services will be held Friday, February 5, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Eagar Stake Center, with visitation one hour prior. Interment will follow the funeral services at the Eagar Cemetery.
